“I got married at the age of 23 and conceived my first baby. Six months through the pregnancy I found myself in an unprecedented situation. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and was asked to terminate the baby. I had to go through the gruelling process of abortion and one my body parts was amputated as well. I was under treatment for the next three years and took both VG and Chemo therapies. I took sixteen chemo therapies and miraculously didn’t lose a single strand of hair from my head.

With god’s grace I battled cancer and won the battle eventually. I was advised not to have babies after that. But, I badly wanted a child and conceived a baby once again. Challenging all odds, I gave birth to a baby boy in 1994, my eldest son, through caesarean delivery. Soon after the delivery the blood pressure in my right eye shot up to an extent that I was rendered blind.

Doctors controlled the situation but immediately, I had to begin laser treatment for my eye with this newborn baby in hand and all other complications in my body. After five years, I gave birth to another child and this time it was a baby girl. Things were turning out smooth but in 2008 I collapsed at my residence. I was rushed to one of the biggest hospitals in the city.

The doctors there declared that I was dead while I was in critical care unit. Everybody believed it except my husband. His faith in prayers turned out to be my blessings. A few minutes later my doctor informed my family that my life has been revived and I was actually alive. All I can remember now is that a bunch of young doctors punching on my chest to get my heart beating again!

Doctors placed a temporary pace maker to support me but that didn’t work well due to the hormonal imbalance in my body. I had to undergo another surgery only to get a permanent pace maker. It has got a lifetime of ten years and I have no concerns about it right now. In my case ‘dawa aur dua’, both complimented each other and I am here today, sharing my experience. The word cancer is too scary at the moment. But, having a child during or after cancer is scarier. I just want all the women to not lose faith in god and life.

I am grateful that I received lots of love from my family during all the tough phases in my life. I wish that every family loves their women like that.”
